Holy Eucharist

Transfiguration - The Sacrament of Holy Communion

The Sacrament of Holy Eucharist at Transfiguration:

As Catholics we believe that the Eucharist is "the source and summit of the Christian life." Its importance is clear in the central nature it has in our worship and in our lives.  Indeed, our Liturgy is truly a Eucharistic Liturgy, a Memorial of Christ's death and resurrection, a sacrament of love, a sign of unity, a bond of charity.  We believe that Jesus Christ himself, living and glorious, is Present in a true, real, and substantial manner: His Body and His Blood, His Soul and His Divinity.

First Holy Communion:

First Holy Communion preparation is offered to those parents whose children (usually second graders) are ready to receive Holy Communion. Preparation will begin each year in October.  Parents attend two mandatory meetings to hear an explanation of the program, the meaning of the Sacrament for Catholic parents, and specifics on preparing their children.  Children not attending our Catholic School need to be registered and attend Family Formation on Wednesday evenings to prepare for First Holy Communion.  Transfiguration School Children in Grade 2 are automatically registered.

For more information please contact Sue Hilo, Family Formation Coordinator, at 651-501-2204 or shilo@transfigurationmn.org.
